ANDY WARHOL STATUE IN NEW YORK: IT’S ABOUT TIME
If anybody deserves a statue in New York, it’s Andy Warhol. After all, he’s probably the most important American artist of the 20th century. The city had a life size figure of Andy installed near his factory studio in Union Square and not far from his favorite hang-out Max’s Kansas City. We’re not sure why the artist, Rob Pruitt, chose a chrome finish, but we love the fact that Andy is wearing his camera and holding a full shopping bag. Andy ALWAYS had a shopping bag – he stopped at all the thrift shops on his way to work and collected whatever tickled his fancy.
